11 January 2013 - 2 Corinthians 11:14

Friday, January 11

Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light.—2 Cor. 11:14.

Satan has promoted many lies that could mislead us if we are not careful. Consider some examples.Anything goes—right or wrong. It is determined by how you feel. This idea is promoted in the media and in entertainment. Such a distorted view of God’s standards exerts pressure on us to cast aside all moral restraint. The truth is that we have a desperate need for moral guidance that only God can fill. (Jer. 10:23) God will not intervene in earth’s affairs. Being influenced by such a live-for-today spirit could cause us to become “inactive or unfruitful.” (2 Pet. 1:8) The truth is that Jehovah’s day is fast approaching, and we must keep in expectation of it. (Matt. 24:44) God does not care about you as an individual. Believing this satanic lie could cause us to give up, feeling that we could never be worthy of God’s love. The truth is that Jehovah loves and values his worshipers as individuals. — Matt. 10:29-31w11 7/15 2:11, 12
